Summer and winter schools

The University of Groningen organises multiple summer schools in June, July and August. Also during the winter, courses take place. These research-driven and multidisciplinary summer and winter schools give students and researchers the opportunity to gain knowledge about a wide variety of disciplines. As one of the three research focal points of the University of Groningen, Sustainable Society supports several of these summer and winter schools. We think it’s important that these schools exist. International students and researchers share their knowledge and ambitions, and come up with important questions and discuss relevant societal issues. By stimulating these summer and winter schools, knowledge will be shared and participants have the opportunity to expand their networks.

Sustainable Society organises together with the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute the following summerschool in 2018:

Migration & Society - Trends and dynamics - 25 -29 June 2018

The summer school addresses trends and dynamics of migration and their interaction with society after settlement, from both a scientific and policy perspective. Speakers from various academic disciplines will offer insights in migration and integration processes. Next to academic state-of-the art insights, different policy perspectives will be presented. This allows participants to gain an in-depth understanding of the complexity of migration and its consequences for society.

We will mainly focus on the European settlement context. Policy considerations and societal involvement in the Netherlands will serve as an example to demonstrate the interplay between migration and society.

The summer school programme is highly interactive and includes distinguished speakers from academia, government, and NGOs. Side visits to relevant organisations in the field are part of the programme. Moreover, participants will work in groups on designing policies and interventions aimed at solving problems related to migration and integration.

By participating in the summer school, participants will:

  • gain in-depth insights in understanding the complexity of migration and integration from both an academic and policy perspective and learn how to analyse this complexity;
  • engage in an interactive setting with specialists in the field and learn how to determine their own position in the debate;
  • get acquainted with developing evidence-informed policy strategies on migration and integration;
  • improve skills and insights in a professional setting to contribute to the new generation of researchers and/or professionals.
